We hope LMM  is your go-to place for all things personal finance but there are other resources available. We share some of our favorites.


APM Marketplace:  News on business, money, and economics.

Stacking Benjamins:  Our buddy Joe!  If you like LMM, you’ll love this podcast.  Joe was a recent guest on Episode 81.


The Simple Dollar:  Trent Ham’s guide to wiping out debt.

I Will Teach You to Be Rich:  Ramit Sethi’s book for young people at the start of their personal finance journeys.

The Richest Man in Babylon:  Personal finance taught through fables by George Clason.
